Forgiving Ararat - An Exciting and Thought-Provoking Story of Life after Death

Forgiving Ararat is realistic fiction that makes you reexamine your conscience.

An afterlife adventure

It is a very good comparison, to be honest. But between Lovely Bones and Forgiving Ararat, I'd go for the latter.Forgiving Ararat by first time novelist Gita Nazareth did well, written from the viewpoint of dead lawyer in search of her murder mystery. Voice-wise, it's definitely stronger and richer than Alice Sebold's 14-year old victim, who at times seemed more matured than she should be.I still think Sebold is a bold and wonderful writer, but her work did not carry the same weight in the end as it started in the beginning, whereas Nazareth's work progressed remarkably smooth, especially hard for someone that toggles between several voices/ characters.I would recommend Forgiving Ararat to anyone who's looking for an intelligent read speckled with vivid imagination.
